It looks like raggle has a way to switch transliteration off although it
is the default mode. After a look at the script (without any knowledge
of Ruby :-) I created $HOME/.raggle/config.rb like this

  $config = {
    'use_iconv_translit'    => false

After invalidating (press "I") and forcing an update (press "U") raggle
downloads feeds and displays them.

Should we change the default for "use_iconv_translit" for all platforms
with a patch? I do not know what could happen if we do. The comment in
raggle says:

  # It's probably a good idea to leave transliteration enabled.  It will
  # prevent iconv from barfing on characters it can't translate, and,
  # since Ncurses-Ruby doesn't have wide character support, it will keep
  # Ncurses from printing garbage all over the screen.
